I believe the offensive zone is the zone where you are trying to score in.
The neutral zone, the defensive zone and the offensive zone. Both the defensive zone and offensive zone depend on which direction your team is going. The neutral zone is found within the two blue lines.
You are not offside. The puck must enter the offensive zone for offsides to be called. Further, a player's skates can enter the offensive zone before the puck, provided the player is in control of the puck and no other offsides conditions are in effect.
A forecheck in Hockey is when an offensive player in the opponents' zone engages an opponent player who is carrying the puck in a effort to counter him/her and relieve him of the puck.
In ice hockey, icing is called when the puck is shot into the team's offensive zone and crosses both the center line and goal line (but the puck does not enter the net) without toughing a player or their stick. This results in a face-off in the team's defensive zone.
A player in hockey can skate backwards into the offensive zone with control of the puck. Hockey rule book says so.
The zone between the two blue lines
Currently there are no offside rules in field hockey; except for the 5m distance required of an opponent at a free hit, or that all players must be in their own half for a centrepass. There is no except, there is no off side. The distance that opponents and sometimes your own players, have to be from a free hit, side line hit or corner hit has nothing to do with 'off side'
Normally 3, but a team can pull their goaltender off the ice to gain an extra attacker. In addition, defensemen are allowed into the offensive zone. This allows for 5 attackers and a goaltender or 6 attackers and an empty net.
There are a total of nine faceoff spots on a standard hockey rink. There is one at center ice, and two in each of the defensive and offensive zones.

If you are referring to zones on a hockey rink, there are three. The Attacking Zone is the other teams end, the neutral Zone is the central area where the puck is dropped at the beginning of the period, after a goal or after a miscall by a linesman. The last zone is the Defending Zone and it is the area controlled by your team.
